Hunter's Hope (Vampire Motorcycle Club #2) by Alyssa Day


I had been waiting for this one since January. Bane's Choice, the first book in the series, was my first read of the year. I didn't plan for this series to be my first and last reads of 2021 but it is kind of cool that it worked out that way.  

Here is the Blurb for Hunter's Hope:

Hunter Evans risked his life again and again as a firefighter until the night he died saving a child...only to be reborn as a vampire. Now the man who lived his life as the quintessential “nice guy” must find a way to conquer the deadly urges that threaten to turn him feral. When his own actions put a beautiful woman in danger, he vows to protect her…even from himself.

Alice Darlington has a secret of her own: she sees ghosts. She thought she’d done a good job of keeping it under wraps—until now. A terrible threat from her past is hunting her down in order to use her power for dark purposes. Now she’s on the run and doesn't know who to trust or where to go.

When Hunter and Alice team up to battle the dangers coming at them from all sides, they’re forced to rely on each other. But Hunter doesn’t know how long he can keep the beast inside him away from the woman it craves…

I LOVED the first book in the series, and I really really wanted to love this one. I liked it, but I didn't love it. The book relied way too heavily on comedy, which to many is not going to be a bad thing at all. But if you have been reading my reviews for a while you know romantic comedy is not my favorite romance subgenre. 

It was nice that the second book was on Hunter, and we were not left wondering for too long what happened after his change. So although this can be easily read as a standalone, I think you will miss one very important part if you don't read the first book. And the first book was amazing, so you really should start there!

Hunter is an adorable and very sweet character. He used to be a firefighter and save lives for a living. He is struggling with the whole "being a vampire" thing. 

Alice is artsy, brave, and has a sad past. The two of them make a sweet couple and you can't help but love them. 

The book was funny and very entertaining. But as I said, I feel like it relied a little too much on that. Alice has a sad background and the "bad guys" obsession with her would have made a lot more sense if there was less comedy and a little more of that heavy past. For example, she sees ghosts- Why? What does she do to them? How is that power of hers useful to the warlocks? ...

Hunter's Hope is a fun read, but it is for the lover of romantic comedy and not me- a lover of heavy (or cheesy) paranormal. In other words, great book for the right audience, I am not that audience. It is a 3 out of 5 from me!

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
